So i hear when you run out of your special aztec mid course, you lose the stat bonus...
BUT countless times i have run out of my special aztec mid course and on the bottom left it's the same special aztec ball i equipped. does this mean i still keep the same aztec stats?

I've always wondered this too. I know you lose the 30 pang aztec bonus when you hit pangya, but I never found out whether you lose the stats or not. It makes sense that you would, since there would not be a reason to have multiples of each aztec if there weren't. A way that someone could possibly test this would be to equip a power-increasing aztec of which you only have one. Look at the distance on the power bar before swinging off the tee. When starting the next hole, see if the travel distance decreases before swinging off the tee. I don't know if aztecs affect distance while hitting off the tee, so I'd have to check that.
I might try this later on tonight. If this plan works I'll post again.
You get to keep the aztec's stats even if you run out mid-course. I used Keeper on Free Play Blue Lagoon first 3 holes. The first time, I did not use any special aztec. At the second hole, the max distance on the power meter was 240 yards.
I then exited and restarted, but with a single baseball aztec. At the second hole (the baseball aztec has run out at this point), the max distance on the power meter was 242 yards, 2 more yards than when no special aztec was equipped above. I tested this once more just to be sure.
The only thing you lose after running out of aztecs is the 30 bonus pang for hitting pangya.
wow i really appreciate you taking the time to test this out. i realize i could've just done your experiment myself but i guess i was being lazy and didn't use my brain. seriously, can't thank you enough
btw you responded VERY quickly haha. you come by here often? i thought this board was dead but just thought i'd give it a shot. lucky me you happened to drop by. nice to know there are other people aside from my friend and i who play this relatively old game.

I just happened to drop by the board since I started playing this again. I knew the board was dead before, but I just wanted to sift through some old topics. Got caught off-guard when I saw a new topic, especially when it was a question and one I could actually answer. Even more so when it was a question I've had for a long time. I might start dropping by more often just in case someone else has something to ask.
In terms of game progress, I've already beaten story mode and am working on tournaments. I've already completed Blue Lagoon and Pink Wind, and am almost finished with Sepia Wind and West Wiz. Wiz Wiz and Deep Inferno make me cringe in fear at the thought of trying to complete their tourneys.
This game may be a few years old, but I only got it within a year's time. My brother owns both Wii versions, and I've played those some, but I couldn't pass up the chance for a handheld one.
